Pamianthe peruviana

My Pamianthe are in bloom in my office, and I just came in (at around 
5am) to be greeted with their heavenly scent.  If left alone for a 
couple of years, they grow more and more horizontally.  I had just 
repotted them, so they are more upright, since they would fall out of 
the pots if I didn't adjust their height.  I am hoping for seed, but 
last year got none.  They make offsets that come off the bulb at an 
angle.  I will post a picture on the blog.

> I have 3 Pamianthe (~35mm diam/1m long(tall?)) yet to flower) that seem determined to grow as epiphytes at 45% to the horizontal. I thought I had what appeared to be a root growing at right-angles to one of them, only to realise today that it has leaves and is a side shoot. I can find odd images online of some pots with 2 similar sized bulbs, very upright and parallel, but none with clumps, spreading or otherwise. Are side shoots unusual?
